Canadian Sandman Comes to the UK

Hotel Business 28 March 2012

A leading Canadian hotel chain has opened its first UK site this month, in the city of Newcastle. The multi-million pound Sandman Signature Hotel Newcastle has been built in the former headquarters of the Scottish and Newcastle Brewery in the city centre and has created more than 200 jobs.
The 175-bedroom hotel is a member of the Sandman Hotel Group – Canada’s fastest-growing privately owned hospitality group, and hosts two on-site conference rooms as well as a variety of room types including fully furnished and self-catering suites. Director of the Sandman Hotel Group in the UK, Mitchell Gaglardi, said: “Sandman Signature is delighted to choose Newcastle for its first hotel in the UK, which was chosen for a number of reasons. Not only is its hospitality to visitors legendary the world over, but it also benefits from superb transport links and, being the foremost city in the North of England, it is inevitably a big draw for businesses and tourists alike.”
